Teen beaten with pistol in store parking lot

A Columbus teen was beaten with a pistol Friday in the parking lot at the Lucky Food Mart on Floyd Road, police said.

The victim, 16, was treated at Midtown Medical Center for a cut on his left eye and wounds to his face after the 10:50 a.m. assault at 2026 Floyd Road.

The victim was in the parking lot when a man yelled “hey” to get his attention. Without arguing with the man, the teen said the two exchanged blows after the man struck him in the face.

The man then pulled a silver revolver, struck him over the right eyebrow and left the scene. No description of the attacker was available. The assault remains under investigation.
